Earlier today, the Coca-Cola Store opened on the West Side of Disney Springs, located at the border between the area and Town Center, just steps from the Orange parking garage.

Coca‑Cola Store Orlando is modeled after a 1920s Coca‑Cola bottling plant. Celebrating the history of Coca-Cola, the inviting brick exterior gives a nod to the brand’s heritage while the glass-accented entry pays tribute to the iconic Coca‑Cola green glass bottle.

Stickers were being given out upon entry.

Inside, guests are welcomed by a 30-foot-wide blown-glass chandelier crafted from repurposed Coca‑Cola bottles. The store – one of only three retail locations operated by The Coca‑Cola Company in the United States – features a broad assortment of Coca-Cola branded merchandise. A line of sustainable fashion apparel and other handmade items crafted from recycled materials showcase the 5by20 collection – an array of items created by women artisans from around the world.

There are two fairly large floors of shopping for guests to enjoy.

Plenty of Orlando-exclusive merchandise is available, including a special wrapped bottle.

The hot item today was a special grand opening silver bottle that was limited to only 500 pieces.

The ramp that goes around the outside of the store offers pleasant views of the surrounding West Side area. Elevators are also available.

Guests can visit the rooftop beverage bar and taste an ice-cold Coca‑Cola while taking in the sights of Disney Springs. For the ultimate Coke experience, guests can choose from a variety of Coca‑Cola brands from around the world such as the infamous Beverly from Italy and Thums Up from India, frozen beverages and over 100 drink choices via Coca‑Cola Freestyle. A selection of specialty adult beverages will be available in the evenings beginning July 8th.

The most interesting part of the menu to me was the Taste of the World. An International tray of 16 drinks is available for $8.00, a float tray for $8.50, and you can get both for a discount at just $14.00.

This is a lot for $14.00 in my opinion, and something fairly unique and family friendly. There is a lot of alcohol at Disney Springs, and I enjoy a drink as much as the next person, but it’s nice to see something special that can also cater to those who maybe can’t have or do not enjoy such drinks.

The floats were all fantastic, made with Haagen Daaz ice cream.

They come in Pibb Xtra, Barq’s Rootbeer, Barq’s Red creme, Fanta Orange, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fantas Grape, and Cherry Coke flavors. There really wasn’t even one of these I didn’t enjoy.

The sodas are akin to a paid trip to Club Cool at Epcot, however, you get a much greater variety here, 16 in total.

The soda flight comes with a booklet to help you identify the flavors, a nice touch.

Just like at Club Cool, you are bound to like some and hate others, and probably argue with the rest of your party about what’s good and what isn’t. It’s the fun of such an experience and I think overall it’s worth $8.00 alone, most certainly worth $14.00 for the full sampler with floats. It’s also a pretty pleasant place to enjoy such an experience as the rooftop bar offers fantastic views of Disney Springs.

They even have cans of Surge…

  • I think the rooftop will be what I like most about this store. I don’t drink alcohol, so I’m glad to have this option on my next trip to DS. And I’m one of hose weirdos that actually finds Beverly very refreshing in a hot day, so I can’t wait to get a great big cupful!

  • I don’t think I get it. Why would you buy coke memorabilia in Orlando? Coke is headquartered in Atlanta.

    • Yea, I have to agree. I’m thinking Coke provides soft drinks for the parks, so they got the space at a deal in exchange for something else. Disney is obviously an enterprise of making money, NOT making memories. The Disney Springs Mall is a place to maybe see one time. Our family left disappointed. Outlet Malls have more entertainment value. Had a $29.00 hamburger there though!

      • Yea to each their own. I love Springs, tons if entertainment, fun shopping and great food. $29 on a burger? You’re doing it wrong. D-luxe is $11 a burger and even the 21 oumce mad king at Splitsville is only $20.

        • Andrew, you’re not in the know buddy. The restaurant “STK” has the $29 burger. No entertainment, unless you like to eat or shop beyond walking around ‘the mall’. I guess there is a movie theater, and a ballon you can pay a mint for to go up and get a better view of the park. (if it’s not raining, not windy)

      • Disney doesn’t give freebies to “Operating Participants” as they would consider Coke. They make Coke give them their products by not offering Pepsi for nearly free. When you buy a coke, it’s all Disney profit. They also take usually 30-40% off the take from operating participants, AFTER the participant builds the stores to Disney’s approval and at the participants cost, with Disney’s right to evict them and keep the building. Genius! Unfortunately, for guests, it is just an advertising center and high priced outdoor mall now :/

  • Do they list which ones don’t have caffeine?
    And I saw they have caffeine free Diet Coke, but what about caffeine-free (regular) Coke?
    Thanks

  • Ok, I keep thinking it, so am going to say it. It’s my opinion. Don’t flame me. WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF SPACE DISNEY SPRINGS IS!!!! So Disney shuts down Pleasure Island, that was clubs, fun spots for adults and older kids to enjoy music, comedy shows, dance, entertainment bars and all would still spend money. It already had over 10 places to eat and stores. Disney Springs comes and tears down ANYTHING fun, rather than adding to it, it has some cool restaurants, and a break from chains that have enveloped the USA, I’ll give it that, but how many times can you eat….most people there as shows in photos above are significantly overweight as it is, and I’ll give it there’s some high end stores, but with clothing I’ve never seen the “T-shirt wearing Disney Crowd” wear.

    Coke is a dyeing product line compared to other beverages now, and nostalgic for people to go in, say one time, ever? Beautiful looking expensive building for advertising I understand, but, what what a waste of space that could have been something entertaining. Aside from the movie theater, there’s really nothing left fun to do for this huge Disney Springs area! Unless you can over-eat and want to buy a few trinkets, is boring as a strip mall for kids, and after 2 visits, I already feel, been there/done that, as I would any mall, unless I specifically want to go park and take an extended walk to eat somewhere. And for that, I’d just use a pass and hit theme park where there’s still some attractions to do. I don’t get Disney Springs. Epic fail.

    • Had to laugh at the part of overfed t-shirt wearing Disney Crowd. So true. You do bring up obviously points and have passion for entertainment and a good experience. Disney doesn’t cater to the that any more. Sorry. It’s 100% about giving just enough to make profit. Disney is making a MINT off of the stores and vendors in Disney Springs. NOTHING else matters.

  • I work for coca cola on all Disney property and every gas station on it sells Surge. Even most Walmarts around do

  • And the 37yo mom is completley wrong. Coca-Cola is the number one brand in the world and is doing amazing in sales especially in Orlando/disney where we outsell Pepsi 5/1

    • Actually, last two commenters couldn’t be more wrong. Coke, and all soft drinks sales are decreasing. You take out Gatorade, Powerade, Vitamin Water and other acquisitions by Coke, Coke sales itself is doing VERY poorly. This building is a walk in advertisement and store which may be worth checking out once. Not seeing much appeal to Disney Springs for our family.
